Album Review

"Never Learned" is an apropos track title, as Grand Magus seems to be stuck in a time capsule, but this is not necessarily a bad thing. The Swedish threesome revels in all things doomy and bell-bottomed, with tempos ranging from slow and chugging to slower and droning. Vocalist Janne at times wails like a poor-man's Chris Cornell, and the group often employs what sounds like a Southern rock drawl in the instrumentation, not unlike latter-period Corrosion of Conformity discs, but the obvious references are Sabbath, Deep Purple, and anything else from the dawning era of plod rock. What little it does in terms of breaking new ground, however, this eponymous debut more than makes up for in terms of volume, intensity, and some of the meatiest riffs this side of the Obsessed. ~ Brian O'Neill, Rovi

Their choice, Grand Magus, was actually much more fitting with their sonic identity, which consisted of both '70s hard rock and stoner rock influences (what the band likes to call doom blues) and drew the attention of Rise...
